Surgery for Breast Cancer

The breast cancer has one of the highest survival rates amongst all cancers and this is due to the advances in treatment and research. Thus there are several women who are living with the scars and after-effects of the cancer treatment.

Therefore, breast cancer surgery now focusses on not just removing the cancer but also improving the aesthetic outcome to improve the overall quality of life, named as 'Oncoplastic Breast Surgery'. Miss Roy has special interest in breast conservation surgery and would be discussing the options best suited to you during the consultation, making sure that cancer outcomes are not compromised. You would be provided written or electronic information to go through and comprehend, after the initial consultation, before making the final decision. You would also be given an opportunity to talk to another patient who has undergone similar surgery in the past. You would be supported by a breast care nurse though your treatment.
